CHICAGO (CBS) -- Police on Thursday were investigating yet another crash-and-grab robbery – this time in River North.
Police at 6:09 a.m., a group of people crashed a sport-utility vehicle into the Galleria Market, at 340 W. Superior St. at Orleans Street.
They tried, and failed to steal an ATM, police said. They then took off in a Jeep, along with other vehicles there waiting.
The offenders took off in a Jeep and other vehicles that were there waiting. Police said the offenders drove off north on Orleans Street.
We talked to the owner of the business, who said she woke up to a security alert. She said she turned on her camera, and saw it in real time as the Jeep started ramming into the store.
"We're watching it as it's happening. There's nothing we can do at the moment unless, you know, we get alerted to the police," said owner Riya Patel. "It's
sad that the city has come to this point, because it hasn't been the first time this has happened to us."
Patel said the store was looted twice in past years, and was robbed only a few weeks ago.
She said she is now contemplating if the store will stay open – out of concern for the safety of their employees.
No arrests have been made in this latest incident.
Police are investigating.
